Call Nick Fazekas what you want - we prefer "the next Greg Ostergag" - but the man loves his dad.

We found a real tear-jerker in yesterday's Dallas Morning News about Fazekas, whose grandfather survived a Russian concentration camp and dad overcame weighing 425 pounds (that's not a typo).

Here's an excerpt about his dad:

After he was too old to continue playing, he settled back in Denver, where he became a bus driver. When Nick was a freshman at Nevada, his father's weight ballooned to 425 pounds.

"He was unhappy with his life," Nick says. "He was eating all the time. He was one big, huge dude. We called him a walking heart attack."

Gee, you wonder what this guy says about his enemies...
